Re: Father Daughter Duo - A journal of Scouts

Update. A day late but I've successfully made it through re-installing the valve cover and the carb removal phase. Looking back I should have taken a before and after but oh well. Tomorrow I plan to grab some hardware for the carb, then new hoses/lines and a PCV valve before moving onto the driver s...

Re: Father Daughter Duo - A journal of Scouts

Therapeutical wrench time this week. Hopefully I can have the passenger side buttoned up tomorrow, swap the carb on saturday, and continue onto the driver side.

Re: Father Daughter Duo - A journal of Scouts

09/17/2020 No serious update, I've been playing with the scout start up issues. Before this weekend it required some pumps of the pedal to fire up. I believe I have dialed that part in, as I've realized the choke arm needed to bent a smidgen. At first click she fires right up. The down side is, she...

Re: Father Daughter Duo - A journal of Scouts

09/14/2020 Tested the ran when parked (4/5yrs ago) theory and lucked up....... So excited guys. I got "stella" moving under her own power yesterday. It was a fun few laps around the neighborhood. Joyus, it was a great motivator to say the least. Corrected firing order added some brake fluid - brake...

Re: Father Daughter Duo - A journal of Scouts

08/12/2020 Today I got a chance to confirm some gauge functionality. I know the oil psi gauge works. Tomorrow I'll check the speedo. The rest of gauges do not. As you can tell, the pace will be slow because I will attack this as my daughter is ready. Don't feel like taking point on her project. Aft...
